As the world of cosmetic medicine continues to evolve in order to include a broader selection of enhancement options, so does the demand for different treatments.
The idea of gaining a youthful appearance through different cosmetic avenues is a concept that has been circulating for decades, but how far can cosmetic medicine stretch? Our team at GMC Cosmedical offer a variety of treatments including a few to cater for the desire to have soft and beautiful child-like hands.
How the hunt for cosmetic hand treatments began
Starting with fundamental concerns such as wrinkles on the face, people quickly decided that the face alone is just not enough. Patients found that although their faces looked smooth and healthily plump, their necks were looking a little on the ageing side.
With the introduction of neck treatments such as skin firming and skin needling amongst other cosmetic treatments, achieving a youthful appearance became considerably more attainable and natural looking. But what about the hands?
What your hands say about you
Hands – we are constantly using them. As one of the most important parts of our body when it comes to the simplest of activities, our hands often pay a hefty price for their labours. Knotty, scarred, spotted and dried-up hands are known to reveal the years like the growth rings of a pine tree. So how can we hide this window to our age?
Thanks to continued progress in the cosmetic medical industry, having soft and dainty hands can now become a reality. Here at our GMC Cosmedical we offer a variety of different treatments and products that can restore youth to your hands.
The most obvious place to start if you want to renew the appearance of your skin is to get the right products. When it comes to cleansers, exfoliators and creams, our professionals can offer a range of Wellness Group skin care products that may be suitable for your skin type and complexion.
Do you have a few veins that are standing out, asking for attention? Sclerotherapy offers a solution that can help to minimise the appearance of veins along your hands.
Sclerotherapy is a non-surgical procedure that is commonly used to treat spider veins and varicose veins in a range of different areas on the body. When the solution is injected into the treated area, it causes the vein to shut down. In time the vein will gradually dissolve, leaving nothing but the memory of the vein behind.
Skin peels for the hands can be used to:
- Balance the complexion
- Reduce the appearance of sunspots
- Smooth the texture of the skins surface
- Refresh skin that has been damaged by scars
Depending on the type of treatment you are applicable for, skin peels offer a refreshing update to the outer appearance of the skin. During your consultation, our team of trained professionals will discuss with you all the different factors that may influence your treatment options and outcomes.
Laser treatment can be used to treat lesions such as moles, age warts or birthmarks. These lasers function as precision tools to remove tissue, minimising the damage caused to deeper and surrounding tissue. The accuracy of the laser means the spot can be removed without significant scarring or damage to the area around it.
This treatment is largely sought after as an alternative to traditional cosmetic treatments because it utilises your body’s own tissues as healing a solution for ageing. PRP can help with:
- Healing of connective tissues
- Increase tissue production
- Support the growth of new blood vessels
- Stimulate the healing process
The platelet rich plasma treatment uses the plasma in your blood to repair your skin. Plasma is rich in platelets which are important for clotting our blood and repairing our body.
How can you restore balance to your skin at home?
· Wear sunscreen
Make sure you invest in a healthy sunscreen. You may not know this, but your skin thins out as you age and sun damage speeds up the process. Speak to one of our team abut an appropriate sun protection product that is suitable for your skin type.
· Drink plenty of water
Our skin is the largest organ in our body. By ensuring you are consuming plenty of water you can improve the colour and texture of your skin. Hydration keeps your skin glowing and healthy by helping to build new cells in the body.
